We are 14DPE and have a couple pimples, runny nose, and slight fever- but it could be heat rash and a cold It will be more obvious by the morning if they are pox or not and I will post again if/when I know for sure. But if anyone wants to make tentative plans for tomorrow or the next few days after that PM me.

We are about 3hr northwest of NYC. 1hr east of Albany. 20 minutes from Hillsdale, NY/ Taconic Pkwy.

thank you beth and charlie for such a fun time today!

nyc, hold tight and i will report back in 10-21 days, lol. i don't think charlie and wren could've got any closer, so i'm feeling optimistic.

we are in rockland county and I want ds to get them... he is 2.5.

I hear, though, that it is bad for babies to get pox, is this true? I have a 9 month old. Should I hold off on DS until DD is older? If not, I am all over this!

hi everyone!

we've only been incubating here for 11 days but we have six spots on wren's legs this afternoon. however, none on her torso so i am thinking it may be mosquito bites. i will keep you all updated! if this is not it, there is definitely still time and wren has a runny nose so we shall see.

well, i'm fairly sure we have them! 13 days after playing with charlie and wren has woken up with well over twenty little spots on her torso, neck, face, and legs. they are still mostly teeny-tiny but i would say i'm 99% certain they're pox. she also had a slight fever two nights ago although she is in more or less good spirits today.

so! we are happy to play...maybe tomorrow (friday) and will be around all weekend as well! pm me for my number, or email at robina [dot] khalid [at] earthlink [dot] net! i will make a new thread, too.
